Art 8: Comic strip

(Group B) We were learning about comics: the definition, the difference between comics and cartoons (animation), the vocabulary of comics, the process of image simplification, use of typeface and colour, etc. For those who are interested in exploring the art of comics in more depth, I recommend reading a fascinating book, Understanding Comics: The invisible art, by Scott McCloud. The kids not only made up their own characters and stories, but they also managed to translate their ideas into a rich comic strip that was finished off with the use of intense watercolours.
